Dear Friends and Supporters:
As we look back over 2021, our hearts are overwhelmed with the goodness of God! The Lord allowed us to conduct 240 services in 17 states with 247 trusting Christ in our meetings. The Lord did a wonderful work in every church He allowed us to be in, and we are grateful for that! Scores of young people have surrendered their lives to the Lord, and many have been called to full time Christian service. Even our 7-year-old, Jonathan, surrendered his life to the Lord during the invitation of one of our Revival meetings this fall!
Over the Christmas season, I came across Isaiah 9:2, and it brought me great encouragement – “The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” Since its release on social media on June 3, 2020, The Gospel Film has come across the feed of 29,470,202 people and has received 12,454,731 views. The video has been shared 52,940 times with 1,846 individuals that we know of trusting Christ as their personal Saviour. I am blown away by the goodness of God. Hallelujah!! “This is the LORD’s doing; and it is marvellous in our eyes” (Psalm 118:23).
Through this Film, people have been saved from the United States, Philippines, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Ghana, Cyprus, India, Nigeria, Uganda, South Sudan, Kenya, South Africa, Pakistan, Zambia, Tanzania, Hong Kong, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Mexico, Argentina, the Pacific Islands, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Ecuador, Swaziland, Columbia, Italy, Romania, Peru, and Costa Rica. Millions who have groped in darkness waiting for God’s Word have now been pointed to the Light of Hope – Jesus Christ!
Our Gospel tract printing ministry, Silent Witness Literature, was responsible for printing, 1,263,000 items of Gospel literature in 2021! Hallelujah! We claim Isaiah 55:11 where God declares, “My word…shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” We are excited to hear one day in Heaven about how the Lord used these tracts in the lives of people!
To stay up-to-date with our meetings and travels, we encourage you to join our prayer chain called the “Remnant Initiative.” Over 700 people are a part of this, and we’d be delighted to have you on board. Please text the following – TheRemnant – to 84576, and you will be able to receive text updates so that you may be a prayer warrior/intercessor for our ministry. We would be grateful for your partnership in praying for a move of God and revival!
Our four children continue to grow and change so quickly! David (9), burdened for lost souls and passionate about my work with the Gospel Film, saved his money all year to pay for the Film to be translated into a new language. On Christmas Day, he handed me $150 and asked to pay for Hebrew. He is rejoicing that his year’s savings will bring the Gospel to Hebrew-speaking people now! Also earlier this fall, David was burdened to write a song with the theme of soul-winning and approached Katie with lots of lyric ideas. They worked together that afternoon and by the end of the day, Don’t Just Pass Them By had been written. They sing it together in churches as we travel and hope that it will encourage others (as it challenges them) to look each day for opportunities to reach the lost all around them.
Jonathan (7) loves to sing for the Lord and has started to learn how to harmonize with us as we sing. He also continues to practice the piano diligently and hopes to be able to play a duet with Mommy for an offertory soon! He has a passion for lost souls and often will be the child to go out of their way to give a Gospel Film card to someone we meet. This fall, during the invitation of a Revival meeting in WV, Jonathan came to the altar weeping and, after talking with me for a little while, surrendered his life to the Lord. Praise God!
Alyssa (5) is loving Kindergarten and especially loves to read. She practices piano and violin faithfully and really enjoys singing with our family in meetings. We love Alyssa’s outgoing personality and her ability to make friends so easily (of all ages). We always joke that Alyssa could talk the ear off a tree stump! She is a joy to have in our family!
Julianna is 2 now and jibber jabbering away. She is shyer than the others but lately, has really started to get brave and make new friends as we travel. She loves to follow her older siblings around and join in on their fun with friends after church services. Julianna loves music and singing – I’m sure it won’t be long before she’s joining us on the platform, holding her own mic and singing for Jesus!
We head out for our spring circuit of meetings on January 14th and will be on the road until April. Please continue to pray for God’s power upon our lives as we seek to faithfully serve Him one day at a time. National revival and global evangelism are possible! We long to see God do a mighty work in our generation!
Thank you for your love for our family and your faithful support. We are indebted to your kindness and generosity!
For the Lord’s Glory & the Gospel’s Sake,
EVANGELIST CALEB GARRAWAY
